Sunday, November 8 2009 at 1:30-3:30 p.m. Program: "Searching For Jewish Treasures"

Shimon Paskow, Rabbi Emeritus of Temple Etz Chaim in Thousand Oaks, has spent a

Venezia, Italy with a page of "approval >from the Inquisitor" (>from the era of the
Inquisition), a Sephardic prayer book written in Hebrew with a page in Portuguese.
It includes the names of the people who produced the book, which are as
genealogically interesting as the book itself and a scroll with a child's prayer
for its parents. Rabbi Paskow will discuss and show a variety of interesting
"Jewish Treasures".

Speaker: Rabbi Shimon Paskow, was ordained a Rabbi by the Hebrew Union College-
Jewish Institute of Religion in New York. He has served as chaplain in the United
States Army, and is a Colonel in the US Army Reserves Retired.Rabbi Paskow served
as spiritual leader of Temple Etz Chaim, Thousand Oaks,>from 1969 and currently
serves as Rabbi Emeritus. We will have a 15 minute 'schmoozing session" starting
before the meeting--this is for all attendees to share anything they want- so plan
to arrive by 1:10 PM

Our rotating traveling library will have Categories A and B. To see which books are
listed under which category, please go to our website, www.JGSCV.org and look under
traveling library. The books are available starting 30 minutes before the program
to 30 minutes after the program.

Joan Parker <joanparker@...>
 

JGS of Greater Miami will be meeting on Sunday November 1, 2009 10:00am at the
Greater Miami Jewish Federation 4200 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, FL
Tel: 305-576-4000 for directions Light refreshments
Free Secure Parking on site. (Have ID with you)

NOTE: Extra security on entering. Gate is now permanently closed and there is a
yellow security box on the left side. Press pound 001 which will connect you to
Security. Announce you are for the JGS meeting, then the gate will slide open and
close behind you.

We are so excited to be able to present Mr. Aaron Bernstein, Southern Director of
the American Society for Yad Vashem. His office is located here in the Aventura
section of Miami, FL. An added bonus is that Toby Leven, a member of our JGS was
assisted by Mr. Bernstein to locate a missing cousin in Israel and will share this
heartwarming story.

Briefly in her words: For years, my brothers and I tried to find out what happened
to my father's family in Europe during the Holocaust. We joined the JGS and they
helped identify the town they came from. That was the first and most important
step. We tried many websites for years, but in September I went to the Yad Vashem
website and typed in the name of my father and the town. Thankfully, a page of
testimony had been submitted by the only survivor of the family. I now had the name
and address of my cousin in Israel. I learned there was a local Yad Vashem office
in Aventura and Aaron Bernstein made the first contact. When I spoke to my cousin,
Shalom Rosenblatt, I told him my brothers and I were coming to Israel to meet him.
We had a marvelous reunion October 1, 2009.

Join us to hear this exciting and heart warming first-hand account of how Mr.
Bernstein helped Toby and Toby's account of the reunion. Come and enjoy the morning
of genealogy with your fellow researchers. This should be a very informative
session. 9:30 AM - Early Bird gab and catch-up time. Guests are always welcome. We
look forward to seeing you there to share this with us.

I remember as a child growing up in Los Angeles, my grandmother Sophie
(a very stoic woman) was always so adament that they were "German"
presumably because she and her older siblings were born in Riga or
Libau ("Kurland" or "Germany") on the US census). I remember the
phrase "high German" being tossed about. The interesting thing is,
both of her parents and her older siblings were born in Plunge,
Lithuania, where the REST family had reportedly lived since the mid
1600s or early 1700s. They did not move to Riga until 1882 or
thereabouts.

Yiddish to English translation needed #poland

Hi,

I have posted an item on viewmate that requires translation from
Yiddish. It is the back of a photo taken at the turn of the last
century and is of two adults and one child.

The people are related......but we do not know their names.

The Yiddish is on the back of the photo and not the best quality, but
ANY assistance will be greatly appreciated.

The link is http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=13802

I have posted an item on viewmate that requires translation from
Yiddish. It is the back of a photo taken at the turn of the last
century and is of two adults and one child.

The people are related......but we do not know their names.

The Yiddish is on the back of the photo and not the best quality, but
ANY assistance will be greatly appreciated.
